Psalm 45 is about the Messiah, not about David. David’s life just provides the backdrop and the timing of the written revelation, which I believe to be a parable of the Wedding of the Lamb

Your Throne is Forever

(1 Kings 3:1-5; 2 Chronicles 1:1-6; Psalm 72:1-20)

1 {To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.} My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.

4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

9 Kings’ daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;

11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.

12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.

13 The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.

16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.

17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

The Marriage of the Lamb

Revelation 19 v 6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

One Response to Psalm 45 is about the Messiah, not about David. David’s life just provides the backdrop and the timing of the written revelation, which I believe to be a parable of the Wedding of the Lamb

    The designation of “Elohim” upon the anointed King in Psalms 45:6-7 is physical, hence if it is applied on Jesus, it refers to his human side as the Son of Man.
    – Son of Man is anointed by the oil.
    – Son of Man has his brethren.
    It is wholly consistent with the calling of the elected mortals, Jewish kings, judges and prophets “Elohim” in the Tanach and the Gospel of John.

    The verses Psalms 45:9-13 are heavily sensual, hedonistic, and consumptive. In the old days it is acceptable for the kings to live on a polygamous behavior, even lusting after the woman’s beauty and obtaining the commercial gifts as the political bribe, but would the anointed Jesus be a womaniser or materialistic? Unlikely.
    Hence, Psalms 45 can’t be about Jesus.
    Rev 21:9
    And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

    In Hebrew, Psalms 45:6-7 use the plural “Elohim” twice for an anointed King, hence it’s against the Trinitarian basic arguments of having only one divine nature of Jesus.
    Unless the original Hebrew Bible was corrupted by scribes, the Trintarians have to accept that the Psalmists have a plural designation for Jewish king.
    Ps 45:6 Thy throne, O *gods* (Elohim), is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
    Ps 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore *gods* (Elohim), thy God (Eloika) hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
